Using the Thumbs View
|Top Previous Next|
When activating this view mode, the main application area of the screen shows a matrix of thumbnails for your images. This thumbnail area is called the Collection Viewer.
Every thumbnail represents a small representation of your original images. The thumbnail image has the following components:
Navigation and (de)selecting images
The “active" thumbnail is indicated with a highlighted outer border. You can change the active thumbnail by either:
[Up] will select the thumbnail above the active one, [Right] will select the thumbnail positioned at the right, etc. By selecting a different active thumbnail it becomes highlighted, including the highlighted border. Please take note that the keyboard keys may not work when the thumbnail Viewer does not have the focus. In that case click anywhere inside the view first.
The following keyboard keys can be used to select thumbnails:
A thumbnail can be selected by clicking on it with the left mouse button, and you can change the selection by clicking on another thumbnail. If you want to select two thumbnails, click the first thumb and while holding down the [Ctrl] key, click the second thumb. As long as you keep holding the [Ctrl] key down, every clicked thumb will be added to the selection.
You can also select a range of thumbnails, for example the first through the fifth thumbnail. In that case you click the first thumbnail, and then while holding the [Shift] key down, click the fifth thumbnail. All thumbnails in between will be added to the selection.
To select all thumbnails you can press the keyboard combination [Ctrl]+[A].
If you need to remove one or more thumbnail from your selection then again hold down the [Ctrl] key and click the selected thumbs that need to be removed. The same applies for the [Shift] key that allows you to exclude a range/series of selected thumbnails.
In some cases it may be required for you to invert your selection, meaning all selected thumbs will be de-selected and all de-selected thumbs will be selected. To invert your selection press [Ctrl]+[Shift]+[I].
